For those who are looking for some answers about garageband, I have found two:
(1) For those who have low volume output when exporting, here is what I learned: The problem is with Garageband '09.Go to preferences -> Advance -> uncheck the box that says
"Export songs at full loudness" or something like that. I know, it seems
contradictory, but it works. You may want to increase the master volume
(2) For those who want drum loops in 3/4 time (waltz) and can't find any, here is what I did. I made my song, in 3/4. I set my tempo where I wanted it.I then went to the bottom center display and cycled through until I got to the tempo and time signature. I moved the 3/4 to 4/4.I then picked a drum loop that I liked, that fit my style.I then switched the song back to 3/4 with the drum loop in the song. I then cropped the drum loop to make it a 3/4 beat.I did this by chopping a beat off. This is the place to explore. Chop ends or beginnings off.

We are moving into some apartments in Thermalito that have always had a bad reputation while I was growing up. We are doing this on purpose in an attempt to live with and in the community we are hoping to minister to.
Our approach to church and ministry (service) is that we follow this incarnational model. In short, and in our limited understanding of theology, we want to follow Jesus and do what he did. The Gospel of John, chapter 1, tells us that Jesus, the Word of God revealed in a person, "The Word became flesh and made his home among us." Incarnation = Jesus became the flesh presence of God on Earth. Incarnational = to be the flesh presence God in a community. To be a real person living with and in the place. To experience what the people experience. To be in solidarity with the purpose of redemption. Usually when people talk about incarnational ministry they assume that the place is underserved, underprivileged, and marginalized.
Below is a my exegesis/commentary on Jesus' Burial
scene in John 19:38-42. This is the scripture chosen for Year A from BCP
for Good Friday. Background on Good Friday
Good Friday exists in the Triduum of the Paschal Season. St. Augustine
calls the Triduum, beginning Thursday evening (Maunday) and ending
Easter evening, “the three most sacred days.”
Moreover, Good Friday was early on a commemoration and veneration of the Cross
as noted in Egeria, Chrysostom, Cyril of Jerusalem, Ambrose and Augustine. In
fact, Holy Week may be the one true apostolic observance because of its
orientation around the Jewish dating and the lunar calendar.
Good Friday also plays prominently in the early baptism ritual where
catechumens were often prepared for the ritual and brought into the prayers of
the people. Also, traditionally this has been a time where, in the prayers of
the people, there has been a concentrated time of prayer for the Emperor. As
part of the season of Lent, and de…
